A black Maison Lejaby body shaper. has laced edged cups that have a small diamond pattern upon them. This is repeated down the front panel, the remainder being plain. The leg openings are partly laced edged, whilst the straps have lace on one edge. It goes over Heist high waisted nude 18 denier tights, a new brand for me. They are sheer to the waist & unusual in that the waist band is then quite wide, rising well up my body. Very cosy for the coming winter, without sacrificing sheerness. I'm impressed.
The bottle green Hush Halley shift dress has various small stellar patterns upon it in black. It has a small boat neck, bracelet length sleeves, a loop with one button at the back & a stepped hem, an inch longer at the back. That said, it's quite short, coming some three inches above the knee, rising to eight when I sit. i did consider my new Gio Manhattans today, but I'm not one for showing my stocking tops, which would have been inevitable. Sorry, gentlemen. The shoes are green patent Mary Jane platforms by Next, that have four inch heels, not quite stilettos.
So where does the Violet Blonde come in, i hear you say? Well, I'm Violet, of course, but I'm not blonde. It actually comes from Tom Ford's Violet Blonde perfume, which I just had to have, naturally & am wearing for you today. I guess I'm ready to go!
